The Jetmore Public Library’s Family Place Library consists of books, toys, and DVDs for babies, toddlers, parents and service providers. We have a small, but specially designed, welcoming space within the children’s area for families with young children to meet and enjoy educational learning and playtime. Our Family Place Library was made possible by a BUILDING BLOCKS PROJECT GRANT from Russell Child Development Center and the Southwest Kansas Library System.
Another feature of our Family Place Library is our
AWE Early Literacy Station Computer
The Early Literacy Station is an all-in-one digital learning station for children ages 2-8. It requires no Internet connection, so it is safe and secure. It features more than 70 educational software applications spanning seven curricular areas. The educational programs are pre-loaded on the computer and displayed using engaging graphics and intuitive menus.
The library recently required a second AWE computer station thanks to a grant from the Kansas State Library and the Southwest Kansas Library System as well as donations from the Friends of the Jetmore Public Library and the Hodgeman County Parent-Teacher Organization.
